Corning shows us the future of computing with “A Day Made of Glass”

Not everyone is familiar with Corning’s Gorilla Glass yet, but many of the current Android devices out there are already using it. Samsung chose Gorilla Glass for most of their Android lineup (Galaxy S series and Galaxy Tab),Dell is a big customer (Aero, Streak, Venue), and it was used in the original Motorola Droid.

Manufactured using Corning’s proprietary fusion process, Gorilla Glass is all about thin and tough. You will find it all types of electronics from smartphones, to tablets, and big screen TVs (that can withstand a Wii remote at 65 mph).

Corning is still trying to get their name out there to the geek crowd and they just uploaded a new video called A Day Made of Glass which shares their vision of the future. I’ve seen similar conceptual videos, but this one really is pretty cool and shows what Android-powered devices might look like in the near future.

If you have any of the Galaxy S phones (Captivate, Continuum, Epic 4G, Fascinate, Vibrant) or Dell Streak, let us know what you think of the Gorilla Glass screen. Has it held up to the daily wear and tear as advertised?
